Prom is known as one of the most magical nights in a high schoolers life, and Friday night that was the case for a few special people.
A Night to Shine is a prom night experience for people with special needs complete with a red carpet, paparazzi, karaoke, hair and makeup, and limo rides. This is the third year Bowman UMC put on the event, and they continue to do so because it’s the only thing like it throughout the state of West Virginia.
“To me this night is better than christmas because everyone’s so grateful to be hear, and they are having such a fabulous time,” said event coordinator Kristi Crawford. “My favorite event is the red carpet where they walk and people are cheering for them because we want them to know that God makes no mistakes and they are valued, and they are important. We just want them to know how much they’re loved.”
Every person at Night to Shine was named king or queen of the prom.
